mostly from electronic background
Tech developer (Current Employee) –  IndiaSeptember 5, 2019
They are all mostly from electronic background with least skills in IT domain. And their security concept is also very poor & have narrow mindset. I don't wanna say anything else.

Great workplace to start you career
Technical Intern, Design Group (Current Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaFebruary 1, 2019
Work in Synopsys is great. Flexible timings is the best. No worries on being late and you could go out of office anytime if you feel. Apart from it, the work you do also has future growth elements in it. Best place to work if you are a fresher and for interns it is the best place to gain experience on the latest technology and tools.
Pros
Great Work culture. Flexible timings
Cons
Nothing as such

R&D Engineer 2 (Former Employee) –  IndiaJune 12, 2018
There is a lot of scope for personal growth. The company doesn't put pressure on people to work, those who are more hard working and focused towards career growth work long hours, others don't. There are plenty of facilities like ping pong tables, gym etc. Facilities are good, people are supportive and open to helping others on technical issues. There are online tutorials available on a variety of topics.
Pros
Supportive work environment
Cons
Too many managers

A great place to start your career!
Research and Development Engineer, II (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaNovember 29, 2017
I joined Synopsys in June 2014 after graduating from IIT Kharagpur. My manager and team helped me a lot in getting familiar with the processes and people in the office. I learned the importance of team work, as well as working alone on complex problems for big clients. The work culture was very good - of helping each other and it motivated everyone to work harder. The best part of the job was it was based on logic and algorithms hence it was always fun to solve new problems.

Typical day of work
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Hyderabad, TelanganaNovember 27, 2017
In a typical day in my last position I fulfilled management tasks of opening and closing the facility, as well as overseeing a staff of seven individuals. Throughout the day I completed various administrative duties as well, including answering phones, drafting documents and emails, filing and greeting customers. I also provided strong customer service and resolved customer issues.

Utilize this question as a way to drive home the facts that you are aware of the skills necessary for the position, that you have those skills and that you have the experience to prove it.

Good company to start the career
Senior R&D Engineer (Current Employee) –  BangaloreOctober 31, 2017
Typical day at work would be fixing several issues that come up. Many of the things cannot be fixed because the reason why some part of the code has been written is only in the knowledge bank of some specialized team member in US.

Management is about how to put the onus of the problem on somebody else's shoulders. The technical breadth of most of the managers to develop and sustain any product is low to minimal. This is a problem with the local site in India where none of the products were conceived.

The hardest part of the job is to extract any information without rubbing off somebody the wrong way. This hinders technical growth but surely helps in developing people skills which most of us do not learn in college.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when you can come up with techniques which can subsume the whole gamut of problems that have been fixed piece meal by very different people. You have to find such problem without any guidance and solve it also without any guidance. This helps you to grow independently and think independently.
Pros
The largest/powerful EDA vendor on the planet
Cons
With power brings responsibility of allowing people to grow, Unfortunate but true that there is no mentor ship here especially in India.

Life at Synopsys
Design Engineering Manager II (Former Employee) –  bangaloreSeptember 28, 2017
I worked at Synopsys from Sept 2014 to June 2016. Those 2 years were memorable for me. One I was managing a very high visibility DDR4/3 LPDDR 4/3 PHY development project. We worked almost round the clock for 8 months to develop a quality product. My team worked hard to deliver this commitment.

I also organized india wide conference which involved all india centers. It was highly successful conference. I got this opportunity and I was very thankful for this.

So not only technical but employees get all round development opportunities at Synopsys.
Pros
good incentives, good work atmosphere, challenging work
Cons
salary could be better
